Knitted Presidents Exhibit at Sauder Village

Sauder Village will be hosting a special traveling exhibit of knitted Presidents in the Museum Building this season. The exhibit includes all forty-three men who have been President of the United States. These three-dimensional figures are surprisingly life-like with period clothing and include unique elements that represent their work, hobbies, events and activities.

Created by the Knotty Knitters Club of California, this exhibit has won first prize at the California State Fair and had numerous television appearances. Most recently the Knitted Presidents Exhibit has been on display in Chicago.

Be sure to stop by the Museum Building this season to see this creative exhibit and learn more about our the forty-three men who have been President of the United States!

Homemade Noodles . . . Give it a Try!

Have you ever watched our costumed guides making noodles in the Eicher Cabin or Witmer-Roth home and said, "I should really try that sometime!" Well perhaps this short blog post will inspire you!  Winter is a great time to make homemade noodles that you can use in a pot of soup on a cold, snowy day! Almost every farm woman had her own recipe for making noodles. This is one often used at Sauder Village.
3/4 cup flour     pinch of salt
1 egg              water

Put ¾ cup flour and a pinch of salt (optional) in a container and make a well in the center of the mixture. Place 1 whole beaten egg OR 1 egg yolk beaten with ½ egg shell of water (about 1 T) in the well.

 Mix and add more flour as needed to form a dough ball that is not sticky.

Knead the dough for 5-7 minutes adding flour as needed to keep from sticking to surface. Cover with cloth and let dough rest for 20-30 minutes.

Divide dough in half and roll each half into a circle as large and thin as possible. Let the two circles dry, but not too dry as to crack.

You may cut the circles into quarters, stack them to make shorter noodles or roll like jellyrolls for longer ones. Using a sharp knife, cut the noodles to the desired width.

Spread noodles on towel to dry. It may take one day or longer to be dry to touch. (Noodles can be frozen after drying). Makes approximately ½ pound of noodles.
